Dundee

Traditionally the city of ‘jute, jam and journalism’, Dundee is now the City of Discovery – literally, with Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s ship lying next to the brand spanking new Dundee V&A design museum on the waterfront by the River Tay.

Broughty Ferry Harbour and the Tay, looking west.
Broughty Ferry is situated four miles east of Dundee city centre on the north bank of the Firth of Tay. The area was a separate burgh from 1864 until 1913, when it was incorporated into Dundee. Formerly a prosperous fishing and whaling village, in the 19th century Broughty Ferry became a haven for wealthy jute barons, who built their luxury villas in the suburb.
